dont use if u have any color in your skin or b/c of the brand name
on October 6, 2012
i tried this product b/c i have really long toes & had a small corn on my second toe. i thought that this name brand would solve the problem quickly and be painless. i havent been this wrong in a while!!! i did my best to give the product a full 14 days thinking i was being a wuss b/c there is an incredible burn. i am no wuss, i have a high threshold for pain but this burn is like the acid is making its way past the layers of epidermis to your bone. while i still functioned at work (somehow), the 1st few minutes after applying the product, i had to fan my foot to make the burn more tolerable. to make the situation worse, i am a carmel color black woman and the corn that started off tiny doubled in size and then all of the area around it turned darker than any other skin on my body. when i looked at my toe, i felt like i was kissing all my flip-flops good-bye b/c it looked like my toe had died. please dont ever use this product. spare yourself the time & pain that i endured. i write this review b/c i usually read reviews with a grain of salt, but please trust me! after this horrible experience, i did what i should have initially done & googled "best, natural corn remedies" and everything worked to correct the damage dr. scholl's caused...i'm just waiting to see if the corn will be completely removed as i hoped in the beginning. i'm using vaseline, aloe vera gel, crushed aspirin, lemon peels, apple-cider vinegar soaked cotton pads (in that order on top of the corn) and then wrapped up for a day (on repeat daily:). best of luck!
